Had a great time. The views were great. Feeding the kangaroos and holding the Koala was the best.
The catamaran is a great way to get from Cairns to Green Island. Excellent option if that's what you're keen to do. Recommended.
Reef Rocket was great ride to Green Island in 50 minutes from Cairns. Semi Submarine was also good. Glass bottom boat can be skipped. Get there early - these fill up quick and they jam you in like sardines. 25 minutes each. Try for the full day tour. 1/2 day is a little rushed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our half day tour to Green Island. Staff were friendly and very organised.
Great day with a great company, we really loved northern Queenland/ Cairns , great trip
Schedule is a bit tight as only one hour is available for snorkeling and you have to get ready for the glass bottom boat tour. Life jacket is rented at an extra cost of AUS$8, which is not included in the package cost. That was included in other full day reef trip, a little disappointed though. Other than these, a wonderful snorkelling experience at Green Island. My husband and I saw a huge turtle, tons of small and large fish. A very memorable experience at Green Island.
This tour was absolutely beautiful. Our tour was the 1pm and we had hotel pick up, staff very nice and helpfull. When arriving at Green island we had approximately 15mins to wait for Glass bottom boat tour which was fantastic lovely look at the different types of coral and fish. The boat conductor was very informative and funny, and gave us plenty of time to take photos throughout the tour and fish feeding. We purchased the Lycra suits for snorkeling, we had about an hour of snorkeling before we had to be back on board to come back to mainland. Would highly recommend tour for any age group and level of fitness, can take the day at your own pace.
Very well organized. Options were good. On time,from start to finish.
The only place that we saw Turtles, so if you want to snorkle with turtles, this would be the place to do it! We did the submarine tour and glass bottom boat tour, but I dont think both are needed, one will do. They have a museum there that has the world's largest croc, we missed it due to time from both the tours.
This is a very good way of seeing part of the Great Barrier Reef with some coral and fish if you don't have a lot of time in Cairns or are not into underwater activities. It takes about 50 minutes to reach Green Island and the Island activities are well organised by the trip operator.
We received great service, it was well organized and the tour guides were fabulous.
There is too much to see in Green Island and a half day tour is not enough. You better take the full day tour. Despite this, the tour was great time.
A good way to get snorkeling on the reef when we only had a half day.
